“Exposing Hidden Causes of Pain & Exhaustion” 

An Apple A Day

An Apple A Day

Determine that the thing can and shall be done and then … find the way.

Abraham Lincoln                  Volume 2 #2  January 2015

Are you finding out that what was good for you in the past may not be good for you now?  Remember the commercials with Popeye encouraging us to eat spinach to be strong?  How about this one ” Are you Coo coo for Coco Puffs” and  “Tony the Tiger is  GRRReat”!

Our relationship with food is complicated at best.  With myths and marketing rampant, it can be a challenge to figure out what is good for us and what might not be.  I know you’ve heard this one!   “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. It is certainly possible to have a good diet and never eat apples, just as it is possible to pig out on apples and have a horrible diet.

Dr. Joe Schwartz, PhD  says in his book An Apple a Day that “No single foods have magical health properties”. The real key is variety, different fruits and vegetables to benefit from the complex array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that may be needed for good health.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by all the ‘shoulds’ and ‘shouldn’ts’ of eating, hang on to your hat! Nutrition is an ever developing  science with new discoveries made every day.

Is this year your intention to “get with it” and eat cleaner? Received recommendations from your doctor for changing your eating?  No need to feel overwhelmed or deprived.

Have some fun with my Apple Pan-Cake recipe. It is modified from a traditional pancake recipe that I used for years before having to change my own diet to gluten-free and dairy free. Have this as a breakfast, snack or dessert!
